Senator, why don't you actually DO something

Senator, you are one of the most powerful people in the world.  Who don't you and the rest of the senate use that power to actually solve something?  Levy the tax to actually buy alternate energy generators.  Mandate the Army Corps of Engineers to erect alternate energy generators around the country.  Post a million dollar prize for a 100 mpg automobile propulsion system that will retrofit into existing cars.

$50,000,000,000 will buy a lot more wind turbines than it will buy nuclear power plants. It will also provide the volume of orders to drive the price down so the savings can be used to provide the volume of orders to make photo voltaic roof shingles affordable 

My God, Senator!  you have the power and the constitution mandate to do that.  Stop with these nebulous, fuzzy, transparent attempts to protect wealth and start protecting the future of everyone in this wonderful country
